Some think GR movies were shit. Well i wont lie, they could been better, but for a B rated film, they excel as a guilty pleasure haha. That said it pays homage to one of my favorite characters, the Ghost Rider. Played by one of my favorite actors, that nut ball himself, Nicholas Cage. I win! lolol. Still, with the kick ass Reyes Ghost Rider in MCU now, i wanted to pay homage to the vastly underrated movie Ghost Rider who will always hold a place in my heart.
Same story as before. Blaze makes deal with devil to save father figure. father figure commits suicide anyway. Blaze gets screwed, and becomes the rider. Shenanigans ensued. What else needs to be said? on to the feats!
Lets talk about GR best power, he is IMMORTAL! He sign a deal with the devil, and the devil himself stated in movie one that he is no good to him Dead which is why Blaze could never die, whether as Ghost Rider or Blaze.
As seen, Blaze remembers the deal with the devil right before he crashes on his suicide stunt, and suffers no injuries. Not even KOed. This is human form. Blaze as a human also wiped out and seemingly died on his motorcycle earlier, only to have Mephisto say to him, "Your no good to me dead." Then Blaze wakes up. Blaze friend states he should be dead ten times over, must have a angel watching over him, to which Blaze says its something else. Fact is, its well establish he cannot die as human, much less the rider.
Here the Rider has his jaw busted off, and he snaps in out with no problem or issues.
As seen in the first gif, the bullet wounds auto heal in a split second of contact showing that immortality to damage. Second one shows him increasing durability to eat the bullets and throw them back up.
GR here races down the skyscraper at high speeds, and slams with enough force to blow back the officers a bit, and crater the area around him. He is unfazed.
GR here tanks a ramming Semi Truck moving at high speeds. No damage what so ever though this attack would equate to Hulk Buster Tony of MCU can put out.
This Grenade does no damage. Ghost Rider even defies physics with cartooney effect after it lol.
GR was effected by the Child of Satan, and still tank with no shown damage these grenade launchers initial barrage.
Mark 19 Grenade Launcher off loading on GR on his bike, no effect. Does not even push him away or cause GR to be blasted away from the force.
Powerful anti tank missiles from LAWs that did no damage to GR at all. Or even stun GR for that matter.
What is GR weak too though? Magic. Its the ONLY weakness he has been shown to have.
Black out given the magic power to black out the area around him, as well the Death Touch that decays and kills whatever he touches. Even after choking GR with this power for some time showed some effect on GR, it still was not enough.
Blackheart, the son of the Devil, was able to choke GR with his death touch, and then outright cancel GR powers altogether.
In the infamous scene of GR being KOed by grenade launchers, the context is shown here. The Son of the Devil, the child, was affecting Ghost Rider with a look, causing Blaze's hand to shake, and allowed GR to be a target for the henchmen. The child did this after GR harmed his mother.
Once again we see the Child with a devil voice ordering GR to obey him, and shut GR down altogether with a look.
Fact is the only people able to harm the Rider are people with supernatural abilities.
GR has it.
Able to force a chopper, and toss it away.
His best strength feat is slamming Mephisto through the planets crust, into the lava chamber levels far below.
Ghost Rider is very fast.
The Speed of the Rider is enough to leave blurs, or move at impossible to speeds of any normal human.
Anything non living can be trans mutated by Hellfire, and turn into Ghost Rider weapon.
Any non living material can be reform and made into Ghost Riders own toy through the Hellfire transmutation abilities. Vehicles, weapons, or certain armors of a certain MCU Avenger.
What gear odes GR like above all? His flaming ride of course.
Its able to move at high speeds, including up buildings on the glass itself, and stay afloat on water.
Its strong enough to plow through two cop cars with ease.
The main form of power and attack GR has in the films.
GR melts high grade steel into molten lead with the wave of his hand.
GR disintegrate a human by touching him.
His Hellfire was enough to make Blackheart scream in agony.
Under water GR is able to disentigrate the Angel who takes the form of water in seconds.
Able to projectile Hellfire with explosive force that blew Legion empowered Blackheart to pieces.
Able to blast Hellfire in a AOE attack.
Able to summon a wall of this uber powerful Hellfire in a large radius.
This Hellfire is powerful enough to cause wake damage all around it when GR is just driving by. Melting steel in the vicinity, sending cars flying off the road, and all with the back ground catching fire.
GR is also known to use his Chain as a weapon, a tool, or charge it with Hellfire for more attack options.
The Chains are used to nab people, and they have the ability to act on their own as well.
The chains are even able to reach, and tie impossible areas because they are semi self aware for the Rider.
These chains can be Hellfire empowered to disintegrate humans, and their gear on touch. Not only ashing humans with a split second of contact, but the plastic, and metals on them too. He uses this form of attack several times in the film, including one shotting to ash 30+ humans around him.
Able to create a chain vortex of Hellfire to kill a intangible Angel of wind.
Takes out a Angel made of earth, who has a shown healing factor to boot from the hellfire chains.
The greatest weapon GR has is his Penance Stare which makes you feel all the pain you caused others, and eats your soul. One thing to note on the Penance Stare, is the fact that you cannot simply close your eyes to it. In the films, Black Heart was unable too, even with the power up from Legion. In the second film, it was shown people watching the PS would lose the will to do anything, and Blackout stated do not stare at it or you will be affected.
States you feel all the pain you caused at once.
Stated to suck your soul out. Also states that no matter what bad deed you done, even for good reason, the Rider will find it, and eat your soul.
The Penance Stare is powerful enough to burn 1000s of souls at once.
Well hope you all enjoy this bad ass live action version of Ghost Rider.
